Installation

The installation of certain tools can be a bit annoying, but these then become inseparable friends to all developer. We will not explain how to install each and every one of these tools, especially because their sites do much better than what we could do ourselves:

  •   [Redis-server](http://redis.io)
    

Install Redis

wget http://redis.googlecode.com/files/redis-2.4.17.tar.gz
tar xvf redis-2.4.17.tar.gz
cd redis-2.4.17
make && make install

Start Redis

./redis-server ./redis.conf

If you have these 2 tools installed, go to terminal and type:

git clone https://github.com/gravityonmars/Balloons.IO.git
cd Balloons.IO
npm install
mv config/config.sample.json config/config.json

Then, edit config/config.json with your favorite text editor and add Facebook & Twitter keys.
